Got this from a friend, they all sound about right to me:

Don't name a pig you plan to eat.

Country fences need to be horse high, pig tight and bull strong

Life is not about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce

Life is simpler when you plow around the stumps

Mortgaging a future crop is like saddling a wobbly colt

A bumble bee is faster than a John Deere tractor

Trouble with a milk cow is she won't stay milked

Don't skinny dip with snapping turtles

Words that soak into your ears are whispered, not yelled

Meanness don't happen overnight

To know how country folks are doing, look at their barns, not their houses

Never lay an angry hand on a kid or an animal, it just ain't helpful

Teachers, bankers, and hoot owls sleep with one eye open

Don't sell your mule to buy a plow

Don't corner something meaner than you

You can catch more flies with honey than vinegar, assuming you want to catch flies

Man is the only critter who feels the need to label things as flowers or weeds

It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge

You can't unsay a cruel thing

Every path has some puddles

The best sermons are lived, not preached

Most of the stuff people worry about never happens.
